Hokai-zan Dainichi-ji Temple法界山大日寺

Temple

The Hokai-zan Dainichi-ji Temple is the 28th temple of the Shikoku 88-temple Pilgrimage. It was founded in the 8th century when the bodhisattva Gyoki carved a statue of the Dainichi-Nyorai Buddha to serve as the main object of veneration for the Temple. The Temple was later abandoned; according to tradition, it was reestablished when Kobo Daishi visited the site and carved a statue of the Bhaisajyaguru (Medicine Buddha) out of a large Camphor tree with his fingernails. The Temple’s statue of the Konzaikai Dainichi Nyorai Buddha in a seated posture, which is said to have been carved by the bodhisattva Gyoki, has been designated as a National Important Cultural Property. The Hon-do (main hall), the renovation of which was completed in 1997, is made entirely of wood, fitted together without requiring the use of a single nail.

Temple 28 on the Shikoku 88 temple trail. Peaceful and quiet. Temple shop right across the street.

大日寺本堂とか奥之院とか・・・高野山とか清水寺でもあるまいに、何で別に施設登録が必要なのか?極めて疑問な寺院です。寺院の責任じゃなくてこのサイトに口コミのため施設登録した人とその施設情報を受けたヘルプデスク?の人の責任です。当然この程度の施設規模であれば「大日寺」一つで十分なのに。ここも地元であり四国の分不相応な蛮勇、長曾我部の毒牙にはかからなかった寺院。その代りに明治珍政府の幼稚な施策、廃仏毀釈...

Temple serein et magnifique. Endroit idéal pour une belle méditation. Prenez le temps d’y rester. Willi en vaut la peine. Belles sculptures de Dainishi Nyorai et de Jizō Bosatsu !

          The largest of Shikoku's prefectures, Kochi is endowed with some of the island's most exceptional sand beaches lining the Pacific Ocean, which narrows into the Shimanto-gawa, a huge river that stretches 196 kilometers into the prefecture, passing verdant mountains and hosting countless riverside activities. Whether you're a pilgrim or not, Kochi's 16 Buddhist temples that make up one leg of the Shikoku Pilgrimage are worth a visit, particularly Chikurin-ji for its five-tier pagoda.
